Learning Metallica songs on your guitar is not just about size or shape of your guitar. It’s to do with the way it feels when you tuck it close to your body, about the way the strings respond to the way you touch them, even the way it smells … Think of it more like a first date!

Learn to Play Guitar Tabs - The Easy Way
When I started learning guitar the first thing I was confronted with was the seemingly insurmountable task of memorizing all the chords in a monster guitar chord book containing 1,001 chords.
The idea was to learn a chord a week, even at the tender age of thirteen I knew that meant lots of guitar lessons, the first two weeks went quite well, I remembered my chords and started to have some sense of achievement, however tragedy struck the third week when I learnt my third chord for some reason totally forgot one of the chords I have previously learnt.
Latter in my guitar playing life as I spoke with other guitarists I came to realize that apparently this situation was quite common amongst guitarists but at the time I did not know this so I set about learning chords by an entirely different approach.
Here's what I did...
I soon realized my problem was that I was learning random unrelated chord shapes without understanding why I was placing my fingers in these particular shapes and without gaining the essential musical skills that would allow me to connect what I was learning to previously learnt material.
grid 1: = strings 1, 2 & 3
grid 2: = 2, 3, & 4
grid 3: = 3, 4, & 5
grid 4: = 4, 5, & 6
The concept is to take your three note chord and play every possible inversion of that chord exclusively on the string grid before moving on to the next string grid.
Here is the three possible ways to play a C chord on grid 1
That's all the C chords on the first grid (I'm restricting my chords to the first twelve frets of the guitar, once you go beyond the twelfth fret the guitar repeats itself, if you have a guitar with a cutaway obviously you will want to extend your chord playing to encompass all the possible shapes available on your guitar.
You know if that chemistry’s right … and I’ve never yet met another guitar teacher who’ll tell you how to pick the right guitar the way I show you.
Now, I’m sure you’ll agree, that’s not starting in the middle, is it? That’s starting at the start! From there, you’re not just playing tunes … you’re building a relationship with your instrument.
